Is disappearance of Karen Swift linked to Holly Bobo case?

A Tennessee woman named Karen Swift has vanished after a Halloween party less than 80 miles from the location where Holly Bobo was last seen in April, raising concerns that the two cases might be linked.

Karen Swift, 44, was last seen at her home in Dyersburg on Sunday morning. Her car was found abandoned nearby with a flat tyre. Swift reportedly filed for divorce from her husband a few weeks ago. Her family fear that the flat tyre led her to leave the car and go for help, and that she subsequently encountered some form of difficulty.

While there are no obvious links to the Holly Bobo case, many are speculating that the two disappearances are more than a coincidence. Such speculation is possibly a result of continued frustration over the lack of answers over Holly Bobo. Seven months after the nursing student vanished, there seem to be no new leads.

  1. I dont think they are related cases at all. I just hope that these two poor women are found alive and well, altho in Holly’s case I think the chances are now so slim.

    • If you look at the stats, you’ll see that most of the women and girls missing from/in Tennessee lived in the first accessible towns from Interstate 40. Think about it. Someone is tearing the heartland in Tennessee apart. Count the perp for the devil’s next chewy toy… moist on the inside and scared on the outside.

  2. I think that they need to check all the people that hunt around those woods and check the ones that have checked in deer and.do back ground checks on them to try and find some kind of lead

    • so do you think that deer hunters did something with her? maybe they have her up in a deer stand. i really hope you mean that they should question the hunters to see if they have noticed anything..

    • Really your using the case of a mother of 4 who is missing to bash Hunting and deer hunters? 4 children are missing your mother and your first idea is to check people who have killed a deer???If something bad has happened here its the work or a human preadator hunting humans.How bout start with all the local sex offenders
      and Mental cases?

      • Uh…I’m a hunter and I actually think that’s a good idea. Investigate hunters, if they haven’t done anything then there’s nothing for them to worry about.

        Since when did we become one of those hypersensitive groups no one’s allowed to question, accuse and if necessary, convict?

  3. So it “raised concern” and is also “no more than a coincidence”? Great reporting, lots of fine, deep work there.

  4. do you have any sources or more details for “many are speculating the two disapearances are more than a coincidence” because it seems that this line of thinking stems from the blogs belonging to private investigator Bill Warner.
